Shallow Pool UpdateWednesday, June 15, the Memorial Building Commission met at the Aquatic Center to discuss and review the shallow pool leak issues. First and foremost, the Commission understands the importance of the shallow pool to the overall operation of the facility.
Two things are certain. 1) We have found holes and tears in recirculation system piping, 2) There are more leaks throughout the shallow pool piping. Crews have been spot drilling all three main lines that feed cleaned/treated water into the shallow pool. All three sections of piping will not hold water, meaning we have multiple leaks, more than just the leaks we've visually identified.
The Commission met to discuss three basic options for the shallow pool.
1. Fix the leaks we have found and re-pour the concrete.
2. Remove all sections of piping and re-pour concrete.
3. Remove all concrete and all piping (totally new surface and piping).
Commission's recommendation was Option #2, based on two main principles. A) Cost effectiveness, B) Ensuring no more leaks for many years. This option would close the shallow pool for the entire season. The Memorial Building Commission's recommendation will be discussed at the City Council Study Session
on Monday, June 20, 6:00pm at City Hall.
